So, I just got back from the most relaxing weekend since getting to Costa Rica. A group of 12 of us went to this little town of Dominical. It was seriously a tiny little town, and was basically closed by 10PM. The first night we went out for some pizza then went out to the beach. The moon was full this weekend so there was a lot of light and we could see pretty well. We went to bed around midnight and the next morning we were able to sleep in a bit. We ate breakfast at the restaurant at the hostel and I had banana pancakes, so delicious. Then we went to the beach. The only thing that I wanted to do was sit out at the beach, and this beach was huge! We got in the water for a little bit at first. The waves were really big and you had to work hard while swimming out there. I got out of the water and we stayed on the beach for the entire day. It was so relaxing to just be on the beach, watching the surfers and reading a book with friends. We watched the sunset, which was gorgeous over the water. None of us could get enough of the beach as we returned to lay on the beach after eating dinner and it being dark out. We returned on the 6AM bus which got us to Heredia around midday. I have slept for most of the afternoon and finally had a good shower.
I love that we can travel and everything is relatively close and cheap. Being able to go to the beach was really nice and enjoyable. It’s always fun when travelling with your classmates to get to know them better and really hang out with these people outside of class. I look forward to the next adventure.
